On Saturday it was not only my birthday, but also Finders Keepers market time in Melbourne! Perfect combination! (oh and the sun was shining and I was eating large amounts of cake - perfect day really).
Finders Keepers is an independent design and art market which has been found in Sydney to support new and emerging independent design. We are lucky enough that they expanded to Melbourne last year and we now have bi-yearly markets held in the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.
There are so many beautiful things. So many. Quite overwhelming to be honest.
Here is a list of all the stallholders. I especially loved the ceramics by Kim Wallace and Bridget Bodenham, necklaces by Emily Green, handcrafted pieces by Stampel and basically everything from Abby Seymore (especially this necklace here).
Besides shopping there is live music and lots & lots to eat and drink as well. Perfect to spent a whole afternoon! Frankie, one of my all time fav magazines, had a vintage stall as well - featuring one of the cutest vintage caravans I have ever seen! Made me want to have a cute little caravan - one day!
Such a nice way to spent the afternoon of my birthday, completed with yummy cake in the sunshine!
Did you ever visit one of those independent art and design markets? I heard they are becoming more and more popular everywhere. Happy Monday! *K
